Friends from Prahran, Australia September 2018

We were thrilled with the villa. We were greeted with a beautiful basket of goods and a card on our arrival. The instructions for collecting the keys were great and if we had any problems we could call or email. The villa was in a gorgeous location with amazing views over Pescara and the mountains. The sunsets from the terrace were spectacular. There were a couple of nearby restaurants and shops weren’t far away. It was lovely to have ensuite bathrooms in each bedroom and the house was spacious and well furnished. We all decided that we would return to the villa in a heartbeat and would thoroughly recommend it.

Family from Surrey, United Kingdom August 2018

This was our second visit to Villa Romagna and we had a very enjoyable stay. The accomodation is spacious and the view across the valley is captivating. We enjoyed the pool and the table tennis is a special advantage for the property. There was heavy rain the day we arrived and the road up to the villa proved challenging. The owner arranged for the road to be repaired a few days later but initially we had to unload the car and 4 passengers walk up the hill. Once the rain was gone the road held up pretty well and we were able to get up and down with a front wheel drive car. For a 4x4 owner its your chance to be smug and use it for what its intended. We loved seeing the wild boar and enjoyed the steep walk up to the cross at the top of the hill above the house. It is a must do view! Overall we were very happy with our stay, we knew what to expect as we had been ther before and in all honesty we think it a hidden gem. Gubbio itself is a charming but quiet sort of town, but the surrounding countryside is ajoy to explore. We will come back to Villa Romagna I am sure as we have relatives in nearby Umbertide, but look forward to another adventure elsewhere next year. Justin

Couple from Wigan, United Kingdom August 2018

A very spacious property. Excellent views to the coast and Mount Etna behind. A quiet location. Lots of sitting spaces - chairs, settees. 2 outside balcony areas, one a large sun roof space. Internet access was good. Outside area had fruit trees and we were allowed to pick plums and figs. 20 minutes down to the coast. An hour to get to the cable car station for Mount Etna. A bit run-down in some areas - the towels weren't guest quality; the downstairs toilet cistern could do with replacing to stop the water flowing constantly; the fridge door was dodgy; no television (due to lightning?) Checking in was a disaster as there are TWO Number 41 houses with 41A in between them - this took us an hour and a half to sort it out. Giuseppe (brother) showed us around the house and was really helpful with regards to places to visit.
